This update covering the first two weeks of 2021 is packed with news, updates, and publications from each region across the globe.
It also contains links to recently-released guidance targeting both Humanitarian Cash Transfers and Social Protection actors as well as links to upcoming remote events.
The "Social Protection-Humanitarian Cash Transfers links" update in relation to the COVID 19 responses is a joint initiative of the Grand Bargain Cash Workstream sub-group on linking social protection and humanitarian cash transfers and this online community on "Social Protection in Crisis Context" (which is an unbranded, member-led initiative hosted by socialprotection.org). Since December 2020, the update is provided every two weeks as opposed to every week. Past updates on linking social protection (SP) and humanitarian cash and voucher assistance (CVA) in relation to the COVID 19 responses can be accessed at this link.
